The Member will not perform, or caused to be performed, any act which would tend to reflect negatively on, or bring into disrepute, any legitimate part of the roofing industry. However, the member may enforce their contractual and other legal rights related to a project.
The Member will constantly seek to provide the best value possible to the consumer.
